A Note From Sara Tracey, Managing Editor

Do you remember where you were when the Berlin Wall came down? Or when September 11th happened? They made huge impacts on our world.

But, do you recall where you were when you heard about COVID-19? Probably not, because it was a gradual news breaker. You do, however, more than likely remember the first day of the Coronavirus quarantine.

How is this pandemic effecting Generation Z? How will it affect them – and us – in the future?

Dr. Tim Elmore recently interviewed students between the ages of 17 and 24 to get their view of our current situation. What are they worried about now? What are their fears for the future?

Producer and editor of the What’s UP Radio Program, Sara Tracey, reads the article (edited for time) “How Will a Global Pandemic Impact Generation Z as They Become Adults” by Dr. Tim Elmore with Growing Leaders.

Discussed by Command Sgt. Major Tom Satterly
with All Secure Foundation (www.allsecurefoundation.org)

Millions of people are struggling right now. Single parents. Couples. Senior adults. Those with little kids and empty nesters. How can we help them? How can we help YOU?

Command Sgt. Major Tom Satterly and his wife Jen co-founded All Secure Foundation to help Veterans and their families heal from the trauma of war. Their resources are a great tool to help others in tough situations, like the lockdown, too.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How can we – who still have a job – help those who don’t?

Why is it important to assess the damage done first?

What steps should be taken before people emerge from the lockdown? Are these good things to do every day? Tom says to remember this: “We got there before. We can get there again.”

What are some other helpful ways we can assist those in need right now? Are there “good” questions and “bad” questions to ask someone who is struggling?

Discussed by Jen Satterly
with All Secure Foundation (www.allsecurefoundation.org)

Jen Satterly continues to discuss why it is so important for people to reach and get help. Jen, Tom’s wife, was fully embedded with Navy Seals and Green Berets in realistic training missions around the country. She was a filmmaker and photographer for 15 years, spending the last three years of her career as co-founder and Director of Film and Photography for an elite Special Operations training company.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How does ASF help people who are at the end of their rope?

How did the healing process begin for Jen and Tom?

Do people just want someone to listen to their story? Do they just want someone to care?

How did Jen’s training missions prepare her to help Tom?

Jen Satterly reminds us that we are not alone. Reach out to someone – anyone – and get help. Reach out to two people! They CAN help you! She also points out that this is a temporary situation. Things WILL get better.

Today’s Psalms for Living devotion is from Psalm 68:4

Sometimes we just need to shout our thanks to God! What are you thankful for today? Tell God what you’re thankful for. He wants to know!

Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)

Mark Lanier has some encouragement for us during the Coronavirus quarantine.

How do you make decisions? Based on fear or faith? Do you rely on the law of the land or on the law of the Bible?

Mark uses a story from Acts 15 when Paul faced a tough decision involving non-Jews becoming Christians. How did Paul and the other leaders resolve the problem? What would God want us to do today?

Day 3

Mark Lanier continues his look at the Road to Emmaus. This week his focus will be on Jonah. What is the purpose/message/theology of the story? Is it real or just an illustration?

If you have a prayer request, need Scripture encouragement, or would like a copy of Mark’s lessons each week, email wantmore@biblical-literacy.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How did Jonah’s attitude shift in Jonah 2?

What was God’s second command to Jonah? Did Jonah obey this time?

What was one of the biggest world empires at the time of Jonah? Why does this matter in the story? Mark offers an interesting history lesson which includes a weak king, two plagues, eclipses, and Jonah’s crazy story…

Did the people in Nineveh do what Jonah said?

Why did Jonah get mad at God? What was his complaint? Where did he go after his outburst? What was God’s response?

Tune in on Thursday as Mark looks at the themes found in the book of Jonah.

Day 3

Are you looking forward to getting back to normal?  I know I am! Pastor Steven Trammell offers some steps to “Walk in Wisdom” this week as we navigate back to normal.

Scripture Passage: Nehemiah 2:1-8

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What burden are you bearing? What pain are you experiencing? What is keeping you from experiencing the fullness of God?

Quote from CS Lewis: “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciousness, but shouts in our pains. It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” In other words: Pay attention to the tension inside of you.

Walking in Wisdom: Trust God’s provision for every decision. (Neh 2:4-8)

How did God provide for Nehemiah? Do you fully trust the Creator God to provide all you need? When was the last time you really prayed to God and let Him know what you need? Are you in tune with God’s vision for your life?

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, or if you have a prayer request, text: 281.688.2630 and follow the text prompts.

Champion Forest Baptist Church will soon be holding in-person church services. For all the details about reserving your spot, click here:
